Ivan Jasbec

Position: Defence

Hometown: Comox, B.C.

Height: 6’2

Wieght: 190 lbs

2018 stats: 11GP, 1A

Age and year with Huskies: 17, first year with Huskies.

Favourite NHL team: “Montreal Canadiens. Looking at their roster in the offseason, I thought this would be a rough year, but they’re off to a good start and I hope they can kill it.”

Favourite NHL player and why: “Drew Doughty. He’s a fast defenceman who can skate the puck and still score some goals.”

On his style of play: “I’m more of a home-style defenceman who likes to make the simple plays to the forwards.”

On his first year in junior and joining a new team: “The league has bigger guys and it’s rougher than I’m used to, but I’m adapting to it and hoping to get better every day. The team’s been good, they’re a good group of guys and Todd (Alexander) is a great coach.”
